At the 3rd semester the student can choose between four options:
Option 1: Project Semester – with or without Integrated Internship
The students can choose to do a traditional project semester typically founded on subject knowledge from the 1st and 2nd semesters and/or prepare for the subject about which the student wish to write a thesis. The semester comprises the preparation of a project report or a scientific article.
The student can choose to integrate an internship into the project module. The internship is typically of three months’ duration and has to be approved in advance by the semester coordinator on behalf of the Study Board of Planning, Geography and Surveying.
Option 2: Another UEEP 1st semester
A student who has followed one 1st semester under the Urban, Energy and Environmental Planning master’s programme may choose to follow another 1st semester under UEEP or Geography. In that case the student follows the course and project modules at this semester and acquires the knowledge, skills and competencies which are stated in the curriculum for the concerning semester. A 5 ECTS assignment must be prepared as replacement for the course module “Theories of Science and Research Designs” to meet the 30 ECTS semester load.
Option 3: International or National Credit
After previous approval by the Study Board, the 3rd semester may be transferred to another educational institution. Previous approval (pre-credit) may be expected if these studies can give the student appropriate knowledge, skills and competencies.
Option 4: Extended Master’s Thesis
Students may choose to combine the 3rd and 4th semesters into an extended master’s thesis (60 ECTS). Extended theses are especially advised when working on project topics, where an extraordinary great generation of data is necessary. Theses (including extended theses) have to be approved in advance by the Study Board of Planning, Geography and Surveying, and the student has to fulfil the knowledge, skills and competencies as indicated for master’s theses. See description of 4th semester.
